East Anglia Forkers Outings

Hi guys,

Had an idea.  I think some of you are off to a garden at the end of this month? Sorry if I'm out of date.  Work has been very busy and I've not kept up with the forum.  I'm only on now because mid watch of GW on iplayer I thought of a forum Q. 

Anyway, how about making the last sat of the month our garden day?  so always arrange a trip for then and whoever can make it goes.  That way easier to plan ahead. Will prob get a different group every time - but that's great!

you guys are going this month. (I can't make it.) we could retry Beth Chatto last sat of sept.  (Not that I've checked with hubbie but fingers crossed and anyway if I can't, there'll be a garden end of oct....)

Whaddya reckon?

    Sounds like a good idea Snoodle image Where are people off to image and why didn't I know? image



    OK, so have though about this and think it's Nut, Artjak and Dove?

  • Hey Panda.  Will look back and find out what (I thought was) happening.  And Topbird too.  And any lurkers that might show themselves.  And as we approach the boundaries of the area we may attract mid Englanders. And holidayers.


    peterborough garden planned for 31 aug.  (Page 6 if above doesn't take you there, Pand)

    This Sunday , I am planning on going to the National Roscoea collection , in Shrewsbury.image

    If anyone wants to meet up, let me know.

  • Oh we could have regional regular dates!   Then if anyone is holidaying/ travelling / just fancies a trek, they could join in with another area.  Briilliant!

    Would love to come Fidget but have been invited to Ma and Pa's for Sunday lunch. Doesn't happen very often image image

  • Family ties, restrict me, or I'd be there like a shot

    Trying to get my 3 year old into gardening so soon he can join in.... He loves trains.  Realised a few weeks ago he knows what a traction engine, coupling rod, and from me, bud, petals, stamen are, but didn't know what a lamp was...

    Supernoodle,  what a brilliant idea image 

    This is one mid-Englander who will be there whenever possible, so much easier go work round a fixed date image

    Fidgetbones, sorry, if I wasn't going to Picton Gardens and Nursery  on Sunday would have loved you to meet you at  that event. The national collections are a joy to visit image
